Willie Brown: How does President Palin sound?
SF Gate ^ | September 14, 2008 | Willie Brown

Posted on 09/15/2008 10:52:14 AM PDT by atomic_dog

For first time in modern history, a presidential race is actually going to be decided by the vice presidential pick.

Thanks to Sarah Palin, this is no longer a contest between Barack Obama and John McCain - it's between Brother Barack and Sistah Sarah.

Rock star vs. rock star. Inexperienced vs. inexperienced. Newcomer vs. newcomer. Change vs. change.

His "change" is East Coast intellectual. Her "change" is NASCAR.

His change is wine and cheese. Her change is mayonnaise by the gallon.

These people and their attempt at crass comparison are sick.

Her change is mayonnaise by the gallon.

A common stereotype held by blacks about white people is that all white people love mayonnaise more than any other condiment and put it on almost everything.

By the way, Willie, still just one step ahead of the law?

Don't worry. If Sarah ever gets in, she'll catch up with you.

And forget the comedy, Barack. You are not naturally funny and you do not speak "street." You speak like a professor. And you do not know how to set up a joke.

That "lipstick on a pig" line clearly backfired.

Willie know politics....................

Okay, but do white people think blacks drink wine and eat cheese a lot? Do white people think blacks are intellectuals? Where is the stereotype balance?

Aren’t you sick of Democrats being mistaken for intellectuals? I mean, I know they technically are intellectuals since they make their living by conveying ideas. But still, I read books too!

Willie,if you are stupid, ignorant and incompetent and favor a person who is as un-American as Obama and has all the attributes just itemized you would love to have Obama as President.

But for me, I prefer an all-American, intelligent, and competent person. If that happened to be Governor Palin, fine with me. However, Senator McCain will be the next President and that is good news for me and the Nation.

Actually Willie is none of those things. He's quite smart, eloquent, and cunning.

But, uh, Willie don't got no morals. He'll do anything for power and to win.

Which, considering San Francisco politics, is probably how you have to be. "Ruthless" is a kind word to describe him. And remember that his training camp was the Cal legislature which he owned until we pushed through term limits and forced him out.

But no one should underestimate him.

Poor Willie. He can't run for things like national office. The skeletons in the closet would stage a riot.

He's gotta be really jealous of B. Hussein.

That’s not us, that’s the Japanese. They put mayo on pizza.

Look at their commercial, you’ll see the mayo jar in the topping parade.

He's right. The interesting political question to me now is whether McCain runs for a second term, or passes the torch to Palin. Regardless, she's the next presidential favorite.

So long Obama and Hilary!

I say let them keep it up. They are killing themselves.

Current Rasmussen poll shows that amoung swing voters 71% say McCain is ready to be president, but only 35% say Obama is ready.

35%!!!!!!

Every time they talk about Palin not being ready, it gets people to thinking about Obama’s readiness. People vote for the top of the ticket.

I'm from Bakersfield, west coast white trash central, and I must say it is more true than not. We like it on our hotdogs, corndogs, spam, any type of sandwich and sometimes just right out of the jar.

Sounds like racist code to me, Willy.

Calling her 'mayonnaise is saying she's "white and greasy", and that a greasy white wave will inundate the country, drowning the po' Brothers, if Big-O loses.

Are the "wine and cheese" are the enormous spoils you'll get, if Big-O wins?

Your'e racist, Willy! You're RACIST!

Eddie Murphy Voiceover: Slowly, I began to realize that when white people are alone, they give things to each other for free.

Eddie Murphy Voiceover: There was only one other black man on the bus. He got off on 45th Street. [ the busdriver looks around the bus carefully, then sets a party in motion, complete with music and cigarette girls ] The problem was much more serious than I'd ever imagined.

[ cut to Eddie at a bank, talking to a black Loan Officer ]

Loan Officer: Now, let me get this straight, Mr., ..uh.. Mr. White. You'd like to borrow $50,000 from our bank, but you have no collateral, you have no credit. You don't even have any I.D. Is that correct?

Eddie Murphy: That's right.

Loan Officer: Mr. White, I'm sorry. This is not a charity. This is a business..

White Loan Officer: Uh, Harry, why don't you, uh, take your break now? I'll take care of.. uh.. Mr. White.

Loan Officer: Well.. okay. Thanks, Bob. [ exits ]

White Loan Officer: [ laughs, then sits ] That was a close one, wasn't it?

Eddie Murphy: It certainly was.

White Loan Officer: We don't have to bother with these formalities, do we, Mr. White? Huh?

Eddie Murphy: What a silly Negro!

White Loan Officer: Just take what you want, Mr. White. Pay us back anytime. Or don't. We don't care.

Eddie Murphy: Tell me, do you know of any other banks like this in this area?

It was a double bash. Bash Gov. Palin about being too "common man" and bash 0bama about being too elitist. To make things clear, in Willie's mind, it's either too far one way or too far to the other. Did you catch where Willie says 0bama can't speak "street" and speaks "like a professor"?

The Democrats have got to get to the core of this new campaign. It's not a pretty thought, but somehow Democrats must plant in voters' minds that, given McCain's age and his health history, he might not make it through the term if he's elected.

Hey Willie...we think this is a GOOD thing. Most of us want her to be President. The more Republicans think this, the more votes we'll get.
